We’ve had over 820 hits in 3 days (we’re still hoping to hit 1000!), and received comments from around Australia, Spain, Greece, Denmark, South Africa, Trinidad, Canada, Russia, Taiwan, and Argentina! We even hosted an original music video created by high school students in Trinidad.
I’d like to thank the Year 2 students, and their teacher, from West Leederville PS for ‘hosting’ my third #WorldWaterDay project, and extend my sincere thanks to all the students and teachers around the world who helped make this project possible.
My Year 5/6 students are researching Asian countries, and I’m hoping to introduce them to global connections through a simple inquiry project. I’d like to use Skype and Edmodo, but given that this isn’t my own class, I’m keeping things relatively simple (for now at least!).
Over the past week, almost all of my students have contributed some questions to a class Google Doc, which I’m sharing with my PLN around the world. While their questions barely scratch the surface, I hope that this project will start to raise awareness of global perspectives and connections within the school, with a view to forging deeper connections in future.
